Afghan squares have delighted knitters and crocheters for decades, with bright colours, endless design possibilities, and ease of stitching. This book gives stitchers a world of new shapes and possibilities - from simple hearts and flowers to swirls, shells, and snowflakes. Over 150 unique block shapes are beautifully presented in a tempting directory of different shapes, motifs and textures. You will even find pretty little joining blocks and edging ideas. At the back of the book are the patterns - and charts - for the motifs. Plus, each motif comes with a mix-and-match suggestion for how the new block shapes might be combined.

Reviews

Blocks are quick, portable and fun to knit, and are a great way for you to try out new techniques. Most of the blocks you've seen before will have been square, but Heather's book is a world away, featuring circles, leaf-shapes, hearts, hexagons... well, as the subtitle suggests, 150 blocks in any shape by square! It's a valuable resource, full of designs that can be used alone or combined to make larger projects, like throws and shawls. Beginners and advanced knitters (as well as everyone in between) are catered for, with items made in the round, side-to-side, from the inside or outside, and top to bottom.-Knit Today
